Several times when I did a search for an author, the result was a list--just one line for each title--listed in order by date of publication.  Actually, two lists-one of posted books and one of unposted books.  I found that very helpful for series mysteries, to see what the next one in the series is.

Now I can't remember how I found those lists.  I thought it was by doing a search for the author under "All Books," but when I try that, I get the usual PBS listings.  It's harder to figure out the sequence, especially if some of them have been reprinted since the original edition and others don't have publication dates listed. 

Does anyone know how I can find those one-line lists again?

Thanks!

I know you get a list like that if you click on the author name from your wish list.

Victoria,

Ronda is correct, you will have to click on the Author name on a book listing to show the Author's list. You can do it from any where, including the Wishlist. I usually put the Author's name in the Search field, after I have clicked on Search, then All Books. When the new page loads, click on the Author's name and the list will be on the next page that comes up. The ones in Green are posted, Red are not posted.

Thanks!  That's the list I was looking for.  And the website looks great, too.
